Economic Development

Main Objective

The Economic Development Committee’s main objective is to encourage, foster, and facilitate positive economic development within the neighborhood. Acting as an intermediary link between residents and businesses, the committee is focused on bringing value to the neighborhood that addresses community needs and creates opportunities for businesses to thrive.

Active Goals

  • Grow the popularity of the SOSNA Dines Out Events, which introduces residents to local dining establishments
  • Establish a periodic business spotlight program that recognizes local businesses
  • Work constructively with developers and businesses to increase employment opportunities
  • Devise a neighborhood welcome packet for new businesses in our community


The Economic Development Committee meets every 2nd Thursday of the month at 7 PM at the SOSNA office, 1901 Christian Street (unless otherwise noted).
